Burnished to a mature patina through 32 years of operation, Midwest Woodworkers and its team of instructors hone technical skills and channel creative energy among students of all experience levels with a conglomeration of woodworking classes. Up to five students dovetail their talents in each three-hour introductory class, where friendly woodworkers coach hands-on craftsmanship with chock-a-block expertise and Geppetto-given hearts. Pen Turning 1 sessions spin humble blocks into monogram-worthy scribblers, and router basics classes carve corners and curves into wood. Whittle away at basswood in carving-figurines courses, or restore youthful glow to aged grains with architectural-carving-inspired floral and leaf etchings. Begin projects more efficiently with a slash course in sharpening, then bring them to spine-tingling conclusions with a tasteful application of veneer and inlay or finishing.
Each Midwest Woodworkers class includes all necessary arboreal accouterments and tools of the trade and culminates in a take-home product perfect for showcasing newfound carpentering credentials. Gift a lesson to a beloved lumber fancier, or dust off your own shop-class memories with a climb back into the sawhorse saddle.
